  2. Either add an 8x4 or a 3x4

    With the widgets on the screen I want to be able to have a large graph and then smaller graphs underneath it. With a 6x4 on top, I can't put (2) graphs beneath it and have it line up. Either make it so the large graph can be 8x4, or the smaller graphs 3x2. Personally I'd go with the 8x2

  3. Add automatic refresh for Application Insights queries (tables) pinned to Azure Dashboard

    According to Microsoft documentation there is automatic refresh for charts pinned to Azure Dashboard.

    But there is no any automatic update applied for the table, moreover refresh button on the tile work only first time when you click on it.

    It would be a lot more useful to have automatic refresh for all AI queries, doesn't matter of displaying format.

    Thanks for the valid suggestion. Your feedback is now open for the user community to upvote which allows us to effectively prioritize your request against our existing feature backlog and also gives us insight into the potential impact of implementing the suggested feature.

  4. refresh

    Only the tiles that are generated by Application insights get auto refreshed properly. Charts created manually in the Logs are not able to be auto- refreshed, having a refresh button on the tile instead. Any one can help with this please?

  7. Metrics

    Some screens in the portal don't have direct URL access.

    For example:
    Metrics per Instance (App Service plan)
    Which can now only be accessed via:
    - App Service
    - Diagnose and solve problems
    - Metrics per Instance (App Service Plan)

    A direct URL accesses means I can bookmark it, as I want to maintain a "toolbelt" bookmarks folder for DevOps aspects of my app.

    Can you please provide direct URL for these resources?

  8. Dashboard not deleting deleted resources

    When I delete a reource group, it is not certain that the members of that resource group will be deleted from the dashboard. Even closing the window and opening a new portal does not necessarily remove all deleted objects.

    I'm using the Chrome browser on Windows 10.

  9. Customer Efficient DashBoard View for Billing Monitoring

    In the Azure dashboard view, in addition to the "Name", "Resource Group", "Location" etc there should a column "Billing" which should display the real time billing amount during every page refresh. This should give user a more handy overview in terms of how much he / she is spending on which service.
    Just beside that there may be another check box just to disable / enable the service. If that exists, then one doesn't need to hover around each and every service to find the delete / disable / enable option.

  10. Custom titles for dashboard tiles

    The default tile titles like "Total calls and errors today" don't say what resource the tile represents. Either add the resource or add a way to customize the title.

  12. Delete dashboard with resource group

    When doing a lot of demos I create new dashboards per event, training etc. and usually I create resources in the same resource group and put them on that dashboard.
    It would be nice to have an option to tie a dashboard to a resource group so when deleting the resource group it would also delete the dashboard.

  13. Minimal Load on the browser.

    When we are selling the idea of the cloud to customers, we are inferring to move all the computing to our cloud machines which can be accessed from machines with minimal load on them. To empower this idea, we have to even more reduce the number of scripts and files that load when we login to the azure portal, it should be accessible easily from a small configuration machine without hassles like Chromebooks and other tablets.

  14. Add More Colors on the Azure Dashboard.make it a bit more vibrant

    Kindly add more colors to the Azure Dashboard. Make the Tiles more Lively with a bit of Animation while we hover on the tiles. Adding borders to different tiles as per the color chosen for the dashboard will make it more attractive and lively to work on.

    Thanks

  15. Ability to sort by time

    Hi

    I think it would be very useful to have the ability to sort the All Resources section by time created / last used etc

  16. Copy/Template an instance of dashboard tile layout of services such as SQL Databases, VM's, App Services etc allowing to other instances

    When using the portal for monitoring purposes one would generally add a number of standard metrics to the dashboard of a service such as a SQL Database. More often than not you have multiple databases and would like all of these to have the same dashboard layout. It would be great to be able to create your dashboard of tiles on one instance service (in this case database) and then create a template which can then be applied to other instances of services (databases) that might be created in the future without having to go the instance of the service…

  17. Add item to Left side menu called "Dashboard"

    When I pin items to the dashboard I don't see them anywhere. Where is this mystical dashboard anyway?

  18. Dashboard editing - versioning - undo

    Implement Dashboard versioning. It is so easy to delete something on the dashboard when you are customising it. With the new sharing feature I can see more people able to customise it. Would be great to have a version control to track who did the modifications and also to rollback if needed. Worth case would be an undo feature when you edit and remove something by mistake. At the moment the only option available when you update a dashboard is 'Done Customising'

  19. Selecting a subscription is not intuitive.

    I had to spend some time to find out how to select a subscription. Selecting a subscription to work on is not intuitive. Once I select a subscription, that subscription name is not displayed anywhere.

  20. Allow me to select my default dashboard---or at least save the last one used

    Every time I log in, it keeps going to some generic empty dashboard now after making the apparent-in-hindsight mistake of making my own public. No amount of cloning, un-publicizing, etc gets me my old default dashboard back again, and there is no way to copy the contents of the dashboard I WANT into the empty one that I keep logging into.

    So, please make a way for us to set our default dashboard, or at the very least save the last dashboard used and default to that.
